Covenant of Mayors: priorities from 2014

  • environment

We are again part of the consortium managing the Covenant of Mayors office

We are once again part of the consortium that will run the Covenant of Mayors Office for the next three years. The Covenant of Mayors is a European movement involving local and regional authorities committing to increasing energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources. By doing so, they aim to exceed the Europe 2020 target of reducing carbon emissions by 20% by 2020. Currently, the initiative has 5,495 signatories representing 181,681,648 citizens. 

From 2014, the Covenant’s priorities will be to provide increased support and capacity building to local authorities in delivering their Sustainable Energy Action Plans; to give a stronger focus to financing issues; and to raise the profile of front-runner cities which will act as mentors.

We are in charge of European visibility events, media activities and capacity-building workshops involving front-runner cities.
